Mahathir's vicious cycle
Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad exelled even himself this week with a speech in which he claimed that “exercising democratic rights could place society in a never-ending vicious cycle of instability and insecurity”.
This from the man who systematically robbed Malaysians of their democratic rights and thus created the vicious cycle of corruption, cronyism, injustice and impunity for himself and his partners and successors in crime that so bedevils the nation to this day.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
